vice of love and lead

she hated the way he made her feel

in pain but in love, it was all surreal

he knew he had her heart in a vice, tightening and tightening

until it would explode in a fury of pain

she kept on giving her trust

her lust overpowered her mind’s warnings

he took her heart and pulled on its strings until they broke

she was so in love the pain did not matter

he left her

like a doctor leaving a dying patient

he left, she was crushed

she couldn’t handle this any longer

her broken heart strings were pierced with lead

the lead warmed her soul

she smiled as she laid there, ending the pain

the carpet she laid on was stained with lead filled red
